A 'unique' memorial. I don't know if the base is original and the top (2000) has been added - or it is all new work.

I missed this one being posted first time around. I take it the memorial is in Dun New Churchyard.

Also is that a Gordon Highlander on the artwork? I would have thought Dun fell within the Black Watch recruiting area.

Regards

Adam
